Summer Programs

Programming Fee

What is the Programming Fee?

The programming fee allows you to experience events and extracurricular activities outside of your academic program. NYU staff will plan and escort students to and from these programs that take place beyond the NYU campus on evenings and weekends when they do not have required class activities. 

These programs will include activities that are relatively independent as well as chaperoned events.

Which programs have the Programming Fee? 

Evening and weekend programming is offered to students depending on the summer workshop the student is enrolled in. 

Please note: All students enrolled in the progams listed below will be charged the programming fee for their specific program; however, attending the activities provided by the programming fee is optional under certain circumstances. 

Students enrolled in the 2016 Summer Programs below will have the programming fee: 

  • Summer Piano Intensive
  • SummerStrings @ NYU
  • Looking For Shakespeare
  • Summer Electronic Music Institute
  • Summer Institute of Music Production Technology 
  • What Makes A Star? Session I
  • What Makes A Star? Session II
  • Classical Voice Intensive
  • Summer Study in Music Theatre 
  • Summer Dance Intensive 
  • Teen IMPACT 

Most activities that are held within the residence hall (ex. pizza party, etc.) are available to all students. Although, some MPAP Summer Programs have evening activities already planned by the program director(s) as part of that workshop experience, and thus those students would be expected to attend that academic requirement.

Both residential and commuting students are able to attend these evening/weekend activities if available to their summer workshop. 

How much is the Programming Fee?

The programming fee is $40/week.

This fee will be added to your bill, just like the tuition and housing charges.

What types of activities would this fee cover?

Past events have included Tours of New York City Neighborhoods (like Chinatown), trips to museums and city landmarks (the MoMA, for example), Central Park, and the Empire State Building, and cultural events and sports like Broadway shows and baseball games.

The programming fee covers the cost of these events but does not include transportation or personal expenses such as souvenirs.
